Real-life Jesus Afterimage

jesus afterimage optical illusion animationThere’s an old saying which points that keeping your mouth shut, is better than telling much without saying anything. Would you buy it, if I told you this was the sole reason you were deprived of new optical illusion yesterday? Naaah, didn’t think you would ;) The real cause is I’m having some workers over my new place, so have to stay with them at the “construction” site, and give guidelines how I want my things done.

Suzanne sent us an interesting animated gif, which is identical to Babunda’s video submission. Check out the animation on your right. Wait for it to cycle back to colorized version, and then stare at the black dot for few seconds. After some time, identical black and white portrait will appear, but if you followed my procedure correctly, you’ll be able to see Jesus in full color! Don’t take me for granted, but I think #Jesus is one of the most occurring tags in our archives. It would be safe to say we are in need for new category to contain these. If you are into color adapting illusions, and would like to see more where these came from, be sure to check the Afterimage category.

  1. It switches too quickly, leaving no time for the image too “sink in” completely–making the illusion not work correctly.

  2. It takes some time, but it does work. It’s very interesting how our minds handle color this application is really neat. I would not be surprised if some people don’t see the color. Please keep them coming! Yes indeed, yes indeed.

  3. This is cool. i like afterimage illusions. they fall under MY definition of illusion. there are a lot of illusions on this site that could be found under Cool Picture on a google search.

  4. wow… how could our eyes (or brain) invert the negative image and put colours in the grayscale image?

    I really like it…

  5. Heyy,
    I think if you stear at the black dot in the center of the picture with the negative effect then when it changes to its normal colour your still supposed to see the negitive effect of the pictre???
    im not sure.

  6. This was a AWESOME ILLUSION, It worked for me the second time I tried it a I Loved the Jesus Picture also, I am a Christian and we need more things like this, Thank You- That was Great…

  7. if you save this and go onto paint and invert the colours it will have changed to full colour! try it!
